Kingdom Trails and a bunch of other vermont musings

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
mostly cycling related to those people that dont read the cycling forum their loss.

spent last thursday night though Monday morning up in northern Vermont trying out for a job at Stowe. A had a very awesome Bear host in the form of Epic.

Epic's view from his house is well beautiful



the view of the stars at night is pretty good as well, you just dont see this in the burgh.



Friday morning after a late start due to laziness and really cold temps we head up to the northeast kingdom to the Kingdom Trails. typical view along the route.


with some nice houses



and some not so nice



Hippie compound!!



arriving in  Burke, Vt I cant help to think where the hell are we riding at? the maps says there are alot of trails around


Sweet so we grabbed are bikes and rode, you cant hang with out Maestro


and ride we did...

 simple put Kingdom trails are amazing, some of the best MTBing anywhere and Erik claims that there are better trails in the state, go figure. I could be happy riding here for many days. The trails are twisty flowly singletrack with almost no rocks, LOTS of roots, turns galore, and very little grunt climbing. the trails we rode drained well and were fairly dry despite the prior days snow/rain.

The top of the first climb we would be riding the "Darling Hill" side


View of Burke Mountain from the top darling Hill, yes thats is SNOW!!! :)



Epic with a cool little opening to the Creek below


My favorite sign EVAR!!! equines you can suck it!


Its impossiable for me not to smile I am convinced!


Epic is focused


easy roots, I wish my camera wasnt dieing cause I would have gotten more shots!!



Erik pretty much kills, very hard to keep with when going down, or anyway for the matter.



this trails rocked, didnt stop to take pictures though, basically you high mark and G out like 10 times in a row, awesome.


Pines well lost all of the pines, but at least you can see burke in this pic


more to come in alittle.

Nice TR.  I rode the Kingdom Trails 2 years ago and stopped at that same spot above the river.  Long day of riding nothing technical just a great workout.  Thanks for the memories.
